download The Mighty Heart of Sunny St JamesM seriously wondering what made me cry so much while reading this book I gave my reasons but I am still wondering why it affected me so much Loved thisAudio 5 stars The narrator put so much of Sunny s attitude into her reading that i could practically feel all the ye rolling could practically FEEL all the ye rolling did multiple accents and voices very well also Ashley Herring Blake is blessing us with another ueer MG story and I m just always gonna be here for it While we wait on this precious little bundle to come out can I interest you in one of her other incredible ueer tales How to Make a Wish YA ff Girl Made of Stars YA fnb Ivy Aberdeen s Letter to the World MG ff I have read and Pandoras Planet enjoyedverything Is It Bedtime Wibbly Pig? else Ashley Herring Blake has written so of course I was beyondxcited to dive into this copy I am also so very happy this author is How To Win At Casino Gambling exploring LGBTIA themes because her stories are realistic and important This one in particular follows Sunny St James whose mom left her in the arms of her best friend Kateight years ago She hasn t seen her mom for that long but this summer Training the Help (Hedon Falls everything is different new heart new friend new crush new momWhile I somewhat prefer Blake s young adult titles since I connect better with the characters andnjoy the mature scenes featured I thought this one was wonderful Sunny is someone you will immediately adore and it s impossible not to sympathize with her situation unless you know YOU DON T HAVE A HEART In which case move along because you don t deserve this book That was brutal man I just feel so protective of Sunny I love her It s not that I see myself in her since we re pretty different people but she s so confused and I most certainly understand what it s like to NOT KNOW If you like the right person If you trust the right person If this is who you are or who you think people want you to be And I m not ven referring to her sexual orientation at the moment although that s an important topic as well I admit it s a bit long
for my tastes which is a tiny problem I had with her previous middle grademy tastes which is a tiny problem I had with her previous middle grade if I remember correctly This is interesting because her young adult titles don t feel as though they drag But in this case there are certain things that Sunny takes time to comprehend whereas the reader does immediately or uickly such as her new friend s preferences or her mom s secret That can be annoying at times and make you want to move things along But all in all this was very beautiful and a story I am proud has been written and published Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin I swear to god very Ashley Herring Blake book I read nds with a goodreads review that s just made me cry a lot lol and damn if she didn t do it again This is my third Ashley Herring Blake book that I ve read and the third that I ve given 5 stars This was so sweet and so pure and my ueer lil heart is absolutely soaring Sunny was such a great character and tbh I found myself giggling multiple times while reading her inner monologue THIS BOOK WAS JUST SO GREAT ALSO I highkey want Ashley Herring Blake to write a novella or something about Kate Dave because THEY WERE ALSO SO GREAT Everything about this was fantastic 1010 do recommend reading this book ASAP. When she meets her new best friend uinn Sunny uestions whether she really wants to kiss a boy at all When the reemergence of her mother Sunny begins a journey to becoming the new Sunny St Jame. .
